“The UCW realizes that there is real concern among junior faculty that there is no formalized University-wide mentoring program,” said Faculty Co-Chair of the UCW Lisa Alastuey.
Volunteers from departments with mentoring programs discussed how their programs were organized to ensure that their junior faculty will succeed in the years to come.
Vera Hutchinson, the department chair of Curriculum and Instruction in the College of Education, said that when she first became an administrator she found several assistant professors were struggling to identify their support structure.
